The Shmoneh is a unisex sweater, knit in two colors, and while it looks like it's knit in the round, it's actually knit flat but seamed as you knit. This is accomplished by using wraps and turns as explained in the pattern directions. And why Shmoneh? Well, I moved to Israel from New York City in 2017, and this is my first original sweater pattern. Shmoneh is the Hebrew number 8 and if you look at the contrast color cables they form a number 8.
